complete description of the failure.


The install was initially run as root and then exited. A subsequent install run as a non-root user failed due to file permissions.

Resolving the problem

The Deployment Engine installation creates temporary files in the /tmp directory. These files were owned by the root user that did not allow the non-root user access for running the installation. Remove the files from the /tmp directory, log in as the root user and run the installation again.

If you are still having an issue with the install you will need to clean up the failed install following the instructions listed in technote 1514639.
